I haven't gotten into the details of it yet (I'd have to get into the spec) 
but off the cuff, most mobile mp3 players can't handle ID3v2.4 tags.  In 
fact, many can't handle ID3v2.3 tags either.  They usually handle ID3v1, 
which is also written by taglib, but which has a fixed maximum field length 
(I believe 31 characters in most situations).  So this may be what you're
